Process and store data, a growing demand from Microsoft’s clients

The implementation of all engineering work needed for executing the plan to process and store data, will be completed by the company by the end of next year

Commercial and public sector customers in the European Union (EU) will be allowed by Microsoft Corp to process and store data in the region, which is a growing demand from some clients.

The implementation of all engineering work needed for executing the plan to process and store data, will be completed by the company by the end of next year and it will apply to all its core cloud services – Azure, Microsoft 365, and Dynamics 365, the company said on Thursday.

Microsoft will consult with customers and regulators about this plan in the coming months, including adjustments that are needed in unique circumstances like cyber-security, its President Brad Smith said in a statement.

The firm currently operates data centres in 13 European countries, including France, Germany, Ireland and Sweden.

To process and store data for big firms has become so large, and distributed across so many countries, that it becomes difficult for them to understand where their data resides and if it complies with rules such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Designed to protect the privacy rights of EU individuals – the EU’s GDPR that took effect in 2018, applies to all companies processing or controlling the personal information of EU residents, regardless of where those firms are located.

Microsoft had previously said, to process and store data, it will challenge every government request for an EU public sector or commercial customer’s personal data and would provide compensation if it disclosed data in violation of the GDPR that causes harm.
